Control Board Button Soldering/Desoldering

Hello! I'm working on a project which will have BlinkyTape encased inside some clear PVC. I'd like to be able to put the mode switch button on the outside of the PVC; is there any reason not to de-solder the button currently attached to the Blinky control board, and instead solder wires onto the contact points that connect to a button a few inches away?

This will also enable me to use one button to control the mode-switch on both of my BlinkyTapes - by wiring both up to the same button.


  • Cool! That modification sounds fine. Just be sure to test it before sealing in the PVC, of course!

  • Do you think there would be any way to do this without (de)-soldering? And did your project turn out?
